Everytime there is this Brony post, I can't resisting to click on the comments. It's like rubbernecking at a car wreck; so sad seeing these creepy adult men pandering to this little girl's cartoon and try to respond to "haters" with comments about how "intelligent" the show is, and we all just "don't get it".

I will continue to view this thread with morbid fascination!

If we can't smile at ourselves, how can we make everypony else smile?

The better metaphor here is Pinkie Pie and Cranky Doodle Donkey in "A Friend In Deed," an episode whose message was largely lost on its audience.

"Dear Princess Celestia,

There are many different kinds of friends, and many ways to express friendship. Some friends like to run and laugh and play together. But others just like to be left alone, and that's fine too. But the best thing about friendship is being able to make your friends smile."

...Still busy having fun,
Pinkie Pie.

js34603: Not that it matters, I'm sure there will be some really clever picture of a cartoon pony to respond and people will just keeping being weird, I guess I can just wait a few months until Brony becomes another forgotten stupid thing that happened on the Internet.

Your wish. My command.

Also, this fandom has gained a ton of stream, it's more likely we'll be around more like Trekkies, who are still here, than disappear. That is, just assimilate into the group of accepted culture.

Frank N Stein: Yep. You sure are making a strong statement to society by fapping to a little girl's cartoon about horses.

1. A small percentage of the fandom does that.
2. You don't hear people complaining about fapping to everything from Spongebob to Avatar to Superman.

There is no pony named "Derpy".

Remember, we should be respectful of this guys differences.

Oh, wait, too late. Very well, then.

randomjsa: I don't know where the brony thing came from but I know where it's going.

Can you say "regarded with less respect than furries in a few years" boys and girls?

Yes, and?

And I'm we're still a little bit drunkhaving fun and nopony can stop that, so Party Hard.

John DeLancie doing something like this, I sort of expected, although I didn't think he'd take it quite as far as 2:20. When voice actor Tara Strong joined in 30 seconds later, and when I saw the final credits, my jaw dropped so hard it probably woke the neigh-bors. They actually managed to encapsulate the past two years of insanity (along with the Brony Subculture Analysis in terms of moderates/hipsters/creatives/etc) in the space of four and a quarter minutes.

Every time I think this fandom's exceeded its grasp, it gets 20% cooler.

I would've expected it to be explained by Gilbert O'Sullivan - guys who are "Alone again, naturally".
